Key Market Issues

• BI is increasingly becoming a central theme in most major IT offerings.

• Mega-acquisitions have had a far-reaching effect on BI market development.

Key findings from this report

• The global Business Intelligence market was worth around $8.4bn in 2008, and is forecasted to grow to $13bn by 2013.
• Market growth will be driven by factors including acquisition synergies resulting from data management providers acquiring pure play BI vendors, leading to new types of business analytics services and therefore new market opportunities. Other key drivers include increasing uptake of BI and business optimization, an overarching need for business transparency, better corporate governance and the need comply with stricter regulations.
• Of those organizations which do not currently use BI tools, the biggest barriers to uptake are cost and complexity.
• A lack of mining capabilities for unstructured data such as text, incompatibility of BI solutions with inter-vendor ERP/CRM systems, and lack of understanding of available BI services among the mid-market users are major stumbling blocks for wider adoption of BI.
• The vendor landscape is heavily dominated by the big five: IBM Cognos, SAP BusinessObjects, Oracle Hyperion, SAS and Microsoft.SAP. BusinessObjects and IBM Cognos lead the global BI market followed by SAS, Oracle Hyperion and Microsoft.
